Generative Gatsby: Artist Turns American Classic Into A Jazz-Inspired Typography Experiment

Generative Gatsby: Artist Turns American Classic Into A Jazz-Inspired Typography Experiment | Systems | Scoop.it

Contemporary authors and artists alike continue to cite Mr. Fitzgerald as creative inspiration, decades after his work was first circulated. One amongst them is a Russian designer by the name of Vladimir Kuchinov, a type face enthusiast who recently embarked on an experimental art project that caught our eye. Let's just say it involves Gatsby's celebrated book, a survey of jazz music and a tricky method of crafting fonts known as generative typography.

Samantha Melvin's insight:

Quoted from text: His images are created using Photoshop, and Illustrator, a mix of found, made, and digital materials. “The process I use is akin to a collage method incorporating elements that are cut, drawn, and painted, both traditionally and digitally. My work mostly is about quiet, contemplative moments with a hint of unease and impending movement and change. Chance is an essential part of my process. It is a collaboration between me and my materials, my intentional implementation of media along with unexpected and forced accidents.”


Interesting point raised: intentional vs. serendipitous outcomes 

How do artists use systems to create intended outcomes vs. serendipitous ones?

Ana Somnia - lights out! | Systems | Scoop.it
A whole world waits for you when you turn out the lights. In our dreams, lie childish figures, random shapes and half remembered memories. Each one is different yet somehow the same. Ana Somnia is a generative art project that emulates how we dream.
